The Best Fudge Brownies Ever! – recipe

Oh me, oh my.  I’ve been using this recipe a lot lately and these brownies are such a hit, I must share the recipe!  Now, I can’t take credit for the recipe because I didn’t create it.  The bakers at King Author’s Flour did and after I made it once, I knew it was going to become a “forever recipe” in my books.

This recipe can be found on the back of King Author’s Unbleached All-Purpose Flour or, for easy convenience, here!  I just made 4 huge batches of these brownies just this week for a wedding dessert bar.  They were the first dessert to disappear!  I’m telling ya, people love chocolate and these brownies are the perfect fudge texture.

The Best Fudge Brownies Ever! – recipe


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups Dutch-process cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch pan.
  2. In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter, then add the sugar and stir to combine. Return the mixture to the microwave briefly, just till it’s hot, but not bubbling; it’ll become shiny looking as you stir it. (Heating the butter and sugar a second time will dissolve more of the sugar, which will yield a shiny top crust on your brownies.!) Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in the cocoa, salt, baking powder and vanilla. Add the eggs, beating till smooth; then add the flour and chips, beating till well combined. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake the brownies for 28 to 30 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out dry. The brownies should feel set both on the edges, and in the center. Remove them from the oven, and after 5 minutes loosen the edges with a table knife; this helps prevent the brownies from sinking in the center as they cool.
  5. Cool completely before cutting and serving.
